With Batman Day being over the weekend, we got two cool bits of fun for fans looking forward to Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie.

First up, writer/director Reeves shared an image of him in the editing suite, working on the movie which is due next year and will have a new trailer at DC Fandome 2 next month.

In the tweet, Reeves wrote: “Wow, I have been away so long…! Just popping my head out of the editing room for a moment to say #HappyBatmanDay ! Can’t wait to share a lot more with you all four weeks from today at #DCFanDome !”

However, the new look at Batman, which we’ve cleaned up for you, left, isn’t the only cool bit of new from the highly anticipated movie.

On the same day, composer Michael Giacchino shared a listen to his new Batman theme from the movie and, while we got a glimse of it in the first trailer (here), this is a clear sample of the score and I can already tell this will have a space on my CD shelf beside my Elfman and Zimmer DC stuff.

Here’s the tweet with the new look at Robert Pattinson’s Batman as shared by director Matt Reeves:

And here’s the snippet from Giacchino’s score which sounds absolutely amazing:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
